We got up early today because we wanted to work on the greenhouse, but it was already quite hot at 7 a.m. We abandoned the project very quickly, not because of the heat, but because of the hard soil and inadequate tools. I had to go to the DYS-Store, and when I got back, the sun was already out and working hard. But there were thunderstorms announced in the afternoon, so I decided to wait for some refreshing water from the sky to get my run in.
Around 3 pm, the sky clouded over, and there was indeed a very small thunderstorm. Perhaps it was the great-great-grandson of a real thunderstorm. But it had water, and it had clouds and the temperature got to a point where I could think about running. Of course, I don’t run in an actual thunderstorm. At 5 p.m., no more thunder but a nice rain. Perfect!
I put on my running-gear, shoes, a cap on the head and left the house, looking forward to a nice run in the rain. But no. The minute I left the house, the rain stopped, and it didn’t start again. Now, it was hot AND humid. Well…
I had to walk a lot today to keep my heart rate from going to far up. And when I didn’t walk, I ran very, very slowly. But it felt good to be outside and going!
From time to time, I shook the branches of trees or some bushes, to get a little shower. That felt soooo good.!
I saw a hare. It was simply huge. I would have loved to take a picture, but as it is the nature of hares, it didn’t want to wait and pose. It bounded off into the fields.
Today’s run adds another 16.2 km for the Run for the Sun. That doesn’t put me even close to the leaderboard, but I don’t care. It’s all about the fun!
By the way, guys, I would really very much appreciate, if you left a comment on my blog and let me know how you’re doing and what you think. Feel free to write in German, English, French or Italian (simple Italian please… 😉 )
